Check your router is set to an unused channel. I check my local WiFi using a WiFi analyser app on my smartphone to find a channel nobody else nearby is using, and use that. Makes a big difference to the range and signal quality.

Dowload inSSIDer and use it to check if the channel you are on is overused and change to a less used channel (1,6,11 are the best channels because they don't overlap).
Otherwise I'd buy a pair of powerlines.

The router may just need to be replaced. The best option I would give you is restart the router. You don't have a terribly advanced router so advanced options may not be available.
